No Such Thing As Too Much Of A Good Thing

First, a disclaimer. I rarely can indentify the ingredients in a dish. If I am blown away by a dish, I ask for details. As was the case with this dish. We each started with a cold asperagus bisque, combined with tomato puree, and pistachio oil. Soothing to the body and soul. Main course, we... read more

According to their Facebook, Google, website, and Tripadvisor, Bill's closes at 10:00pm on Saturday nights. We show up at 9:15pm and the woman behind the bar says they are closed...there are multiple groups of people still eating...so what is going on? No apologies...they close whenever they feel like it. If they do no want my business, that is fine because... More

I am encouraging anyone who is in or near Owensboro to make sure they dine at Bill's! This was an excellent dining experience. The service was absolutely fantastic & the food was delightful! The property is quaint & from the outside , the inside was completely unexpected. I love the decor style & the whole experience was just top notch:)... More

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch. The decor is like a step back in time. The wait staff is very friendly, personable, and helpful. We tried the crab cakes as the server said they always sell out. I can see why. We loved them. The coleslaw was excellent and not typical. The fresh cornbread was remarkable. The highlight... More

We tried this establishment last summer as we had a coupon book from a local fundraising establishment. I'm glad we had the BOGO as that price was still terrible. I just never got around to reviewing as I guess as we were both so disappointed. I had a steak and it was nothing to write home about. My wife had... More

The two of us each had the cauliflower creamy bisque. Cauliflower is not among my top ten veggies. Nevertheless, this bisque was soft, creamy, and wonderful. There was just a touch of nutmeg to take the flavor to the next level. We also had the same entree-- roasted red snapper. It was glazed, with perhaps balsamic vinegar. It was wonderfully... More

Owensboro has long been starved for a quality eatery. I've eaten at top notch restaurants all over the country and Bill's ranks right up there with some of the best I've ever eaten at.

We had the chef's tasting menu. This was amazing for any city especially Owensboro. Highly recommended.

From the outside Bills is deceiving. But once inside you start to appreciate the attention to details that Bill has put into, not only the atmosphere but the food as well. We have never been disappointed at Bill's. He takes great pride in all his dishes and will readily recommend a dish he believes you would like. And you do!... More
